    Notes 
    • He appears on the Negroponte-Agelasto tree.
    • Occupation: merchant; putative founder of Ralli & Agelasto, 1837, Tabreez, Persia. His wife was a Ralli. An Agelasto living in Liverpool/Manchester in the mid 19th Century was most likely involved in one of the Ralli companies, Ralli & Agelasto, doing business in Constantinople, Trebizond, Tabriz and Liverpool, 1837-71. See chart in Chapman, p. 156.
    • He is the putative Agelasto who in May 1837 (with S.A. Ralli, P.A. Ralli and G.N. Eumorfopoulo) set up a branch of Ralli Brothers (London) and Ralli Schilizzi & Argenti (Marseilles) in Persia (Tabreez) under the name of Ralli & Agelasto.
    • In Tabreez, Persia, in Jan 1840, a branch of the Constantinople firm Toumasi Ralli & Co. was constituted under the style of Ralli & Agelasto, managed by G.N. Eumorfopoulo assisted by J. Sangrandi and A.A. Sepsi.
    • Cozis Agelasto & Co. is mentioned as a commercial enterprise by George P. Georgialo, The Holy Church of Saint John of the Chiots at Galata, Constantinople, 1898, cited in: George Zolotas, History of Chios, p 263.
    • Based on the accounting records of St John Church, Georgiadis makes an alphabetical list of Chiot enterprises [of Constantinople] that sponsored the Church in the time from 1843 to 1880. There is no mention of year/date. Included among Agelastos enterprises is: Cozís Agelastos & Co.
    • His portrait appears in T. Catsiyannis, Pandias Stephen Rallis 1793-1865.
    • Residence: 1828, rue le Maitre 8, Marseille, France; 1859, Constantinople.
    • The parternships: Ralli Brothers, London; E. Ralli, Manchester; Thos. Ralli and Co. Constantinople; Ralli Brothers, Odessa; Ralli and Scaramanga, Taigan Rock; Ralli, Schilizzi, and Argenti, Marseilles; and Ralli and Aghelasto, Tauris [Tabriz, Iran] existed until 1839, at which point Antonio Ralli, Stephen Ralli, Pantia Ralli, of Tauris, and Michael Ralli left them (London Gazette 1 Nov 1839).
    • Presumably he was born on and resided until 1822 at the St. Tryphon property, Kampos, Chios.
    • Philanthropy: Cozìs Agelasto bequeathed in 1860 30.000 Grosia to the National Hospital of Heptapyrgion [in Constantinople], 30.000 Gr to the Chios Hospital, 5.000 Gr to the Boys School of Stavrodromion [in Constantinople], 5.000 Gr to the Greek Literature Club [in Constantinople] and other sums to several institutions, in total 100.000 Grosia according to unpublished research by Demetrios Melachrinoudis.
